Don't forget to look at all kinds of hobbies! You never know what you'll find!!

My, My...Have I let so much time go by once again. I hope all is well out there in 'blogworld'! Me, I've been having to use my time to fill out yucky paperwork:( Not much fun if you ask me! I'm down the last section of it though....and when I finish, I plan on rewarding myself with a few new types of birdhouses.... I hope. LOL, now that I think of it, I have several that need roofs, and all those barns I made need to be finished, too. The lighthouses just didn't work out for me~ yet, but I'm still thinking about it........And I've been working on the tree house again!!! YUP! :) And it's killing me Not to finish it. Now that I've figured out where to go with it, I just want to finish it! I've been watching Railroad train scenery DVDs from the library, and learning all kinds of fun stuff. Like wet newspaper and plaster ~the kind they use to cast your arm after you've broken it!! Who knew it would work perfectly for my tree:) I've been taking pictures as I go, so when I finally get back around to getting pictures up again, I'll do a post. The one good thing about not having a computer, is you actually get work done, sometimes, lol....Well, Me and the kid are at the library, and my time is almost up......
Until Next Time...

Hello from Oklahoma!

Yup! You read that right..... I'm in Oklahoma City till tomorrow, then I will be on a plane ride back home:) My sister and family got transferred to OK, and she needed someone to ride with her and the baby, and you know I love road trips, so here I am. Took us 3 days to get here.... which is pretty good considering we had the moose, Um... I mean my 4 month old nephew with us. Poor thing was so tired of being stuck in the car seat, he either slept or he screamed! But we're here.... and tomorrow I have to say goodbye! Brings tears to my eyes just thinking of leaving him....kinda got used to having him around this week!

So the trip has been kinda boring....Saw lots of trees!! However, there were a few things here and there that got my attention. First you'd see a beautiful church...then you'd see a XXX Adult toy store sitting right next to it....I guess when you get done shopping, you're suppose to go pray for forgiveness or something?? LOL ........Saw lots of barns, and a few had quilts hanging from them....Gives me ideas to do some in miniature:) Got to drive through Nashville, Memphis, Little Rock......Didn't stop or anything, we were on a mission to get here.....but it was neat to see the cities from the road. I'd love to spend some time in Tennessee...Beautiful state!! Lots of things to see!

As for Christmas..... I don't want to go there. I AM soooooo Pissed over a Christmas present that was bought for one of my kids.... I just don't feel like some people really think about things. Totally ruined my Christmas! But hey...the buyer got 'brownie points' as he put it..... I just hope that they were worth destroying my family over! Anyways.... Now that I've had a week to think about it, when I get home....Things are gonna change. I just need to find the energy to get my point across! Hey, people! Before you buy something for someone else's kid....why don't you ask the parents first, It would make everyone's life easier if people could respect the way people want to raise their kids, ya know!! Well....think that's all I need to say about that! Ugg!

As for Cora, she's doing a lot better. She's still a little congested.... but that will pass with time.

And as for me...... I am soooo ready to be back online! I'm using my brother-in-law's computer right now, and it's making me miss my computer. I have sooooo many pictures to show you:) And I miss reading everyone's blogs! ......don't know when my computer will get fixed....still trying to come up with the money to get my tooth finished...had a root canal, and filling, just can't afford the crown yet......Oneday?!

Oh, and I got a few barns built and painted before I left.....and they're so freaking cute:) Just have to drill holes in them and put the roofs on, Ya'll are gonna love them:) I hope, lol.

OK.....well I guess that's about it........
Until Next time............
